Monitor PBX ASCII Devices through a Terminal Server

Monitor PBX ASCII Devices through a Terminal Server

Equipment Used:

  • T/Mon NOC
  • PBX ASCII equipment
  • Terminal Server

How This Application Works:

This solution will consolidate the ASCII from your PBX devices and report those alarms to your T/Mon NOC. We have included two (2) options. Both devices we've included in this solution are bi-directional, so data can be sent and received to your PBX's.

Option #1 features the 8 Serial Port Switch. The 8 channel switch will multiplex 8 RS232 devices to a single RS232 port. Since there are sixteen (16) devices we've included two (2) of the routers. These will provide you with DB9 connectors to tie into your PBX devices and an DB9 RS232 connection for exporting data to your T/Mon NOC. These two (2) routers will interface with the two (2) RS232 (RJ11) connections on your T/Mon NOC. We have also included the ASCII to MUX software module, allowing any direct ASCII ports on your system to connect to the 8 serial port switch.

Option #2 consists of a single sixteen (16) port terminal server. It will provide you with sixteen (16) RS232 serial ports to tie in to your PBX devices and a LAN connection for reporting to your T/Mon NOC. This system will eliminate the need for switching because all data will be sent through an IP network.

Lastly, this solution is only for a single T/Mon NOC deployed into your network. We understand that you may be considering a dual T/Mon NOC system for the future. If you wish to implement the dual T/Mon NOC "HOT" Standby master systems, we strongly recommend option #2, as it will ease the installation and databasing when it is deployed.

We strive to exceed your expectations through teamwork, innovation, and a commitment to client satisfaction. We look forward to working with you on this project and will be contacting you soon to schedule the next steps.
